random ramblings of an unconscious mind

Happytime Murders

The Happytime Murders are expected at a cinema near you in 2013. The story takes place in a world where puppets and humans co-exist, but it is not your average children’s story, it is an adult murder mystery, which will likely be R-rated due to foul language (there is a lot of swearing), sex, violence and murder. Muppets are second class citizens.

This film noir follows a puppet private eye and disgraced ex-cop, Phil Phillips, who is hot on the trail of the serial killer who murdered his brother and is now targeting the cast members of the famous 80s television show, “The Happytime Gang.” As the killings continue, Phil’s former flame, Jenny, is next on the list. It’s up to Phil and his ex-partner, Detective Edwards, to find the culprit, but as bad blood and old resentments resurface the clues start pointing to the only viable suspect, Phil himself. Now he’s on the run with only his wits and hard headed determination, as he tries to solve, “The Happytime Murders.”

The creators of this movie wish to create a puppet movie equivalent to Heat, Dark Knight, Pulp Fiction.

People might  think that there is a rehashing of previous ideas, like Roger Rabbit, or even Angel’s Smile Time episode (note the resemblance of Phil to Angel).

No matter the inspiration, or if it has been done before, the concept art of this project seems very promising, with puppet adult-store, and the victim having his insides ripped apart.
